EU Chemicals Regulation New Governance, Hybridity and REACH

New Governance, Hybridity and REACH

Steven Vaughan

This book provides an exploratory, explanatory and normative account of REACH, the EU Regulation on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, and its regulator, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). There are more than one million words of official ECHA guidance to accompany the 516 pages of REACH. This book sets out a thick, detailed analysis of REACH and ECHA’s guidance and, in so doing, offers up a complex, nuanced and differentiated account of hybrid new governance.

Chapter 9: REACH and differentiated soft norms

Steven Vaughan


This book is the first account of REACH to fully explore relationships between the Regulation and its post-legislative guidance, and how the latter interacts with the former. This chapter considers how we can use the data in this book to explore differentiation within soft law, for the first time, along a number of axes: authorship; formats; addresses; acceptance; functions; genesis; review; impact; and coverage.
